Leicester Tips: Easy Gold
Ran fastest closing sectional last time by 0.74s and should be marked higher than the 80-rated horses he finished amongst.
Both UAE Prince and Easy Gold were undone by a steady gallop last time out but only one of them managed a reasonable speed rating given the slack pace.
Given UAE Prince is odds-on, you’d think he’d be the one but that is incorrect. UAE Prince clocked a sectional adjusted speed rating of 51 but Easy Gold ran to a mark of 70.
The price disparity seems to be about reputation. UAE Prince was a costly yearling and a 16/1 shot for the Derby but that dream was shattered at Leicester and he has it all to prove.
Easy Gold has more positives. He ran the fastest closing sectional of his race by 0.74s (UAE Prince was only third fastest) and should really have beaten the three 80-rated horses around him. He is not the hype horse but is the value.
